Drug Dealer Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison

Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett sentenced Jamar Williams, age 28, of Baltimore, Maryland today to 10 years in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for possession with intent to distribute Dimethylone, a controlled dangerous substance.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge William P. McMullan of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives - Baltimore Field Division; Interim Commissioner Kevin Davis of the Baltimore Police Department and Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby.

According to his plea agreement, Baltimore Police officers on patrol observed Williams driving a car in the 4000 block of the Alameda.  The officers stopped Williams because he was not wearing a seat belt.  There was a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle and the occupants.  Williams did not provide the officer with a driver’s license and informed the officer that the vehicle was a rental car that had been rented in a relative’s name.  Williams could not legally operate the vehicle and the officers asked Williams and the two passengers to get out of the car.  Officers recovered a clear bag containing 14.06 grams of Dimethylone, a controlled dangerous substance, from underneath the front passenger seat.  Williams admitted that he possessed the Dimethylone with the intent to distribute it.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein praised the ATF, Baltimore Police Department and Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office for their work in the investigation.  Mr. Rosenstein thanked Special Assistant United States Attorney H. Brandis Marsh, Jr., a cross-designated Baltimore City Assistant State’s Attorney, who prosecuted the case.
